ACE Spotlight: Sophie Moss, Albany Symphony

Sophie Moss joined Albany Symphony two years ago and is already on her third job title. “Albany Symphony has really allowed me to take the initiative on many projects, so it’s been easy to gain a lot of experience very quickly,” she said. “There is always a LOT to do!”

Her interest in music began with violin lessons when she was 6 (she continued playing through high school, and considered a career as a performer), and she worked in the Music Department for all four years at SUNY Buffalo.  When she completed her Masters degree in Liberal Studies at the University at Albany, she was happy to find a job that combined her experience as a performer, music fan, sales and marketing professional, and administrator. In her words, “It’s a perfect fit!”

Her latest role as Program Manager for Albany Symphony’s “Water Music NY” came about when she was lead grant writer on the project in 2016. “David Alan Miller had been developing the idea for Water Music NY for over ten years, so when we saw that NYSCA and Market NY were offering funding for programs celebrating the Bicentennial of the Erie Canal, we were ready,” she said.

You can see Albany Symphony Water Music NY from each evening at 8:00 — 9:30pm from July 2nd through July 8th at a wide variety of beautiful Erie Canal locations.  Click here for the location and performance details, and here  for more about Albany Symphony Water Music NY.
